Customer Question
It goes in reverse...

It goes in reverse but not in drive or any other gears

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

Well I just bought the car the guy said it's new motor and tranny and it only has 40,000 miles on it

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

2009 G6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G6 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well it drove just fine but it didn't have any transmission fluid and filter was clogged so I changed that filled up with new transmission fluid and then an hour later it wouldn't go into any gear except reverse

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's it

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
light is on there was 28 codes that came up mostly with transmission and there was none but I only drove it like 3 miles before putting new filter and new transmission fluid
Pontiac Mechanic: Gary, Pontiac Technician replied 7 months ago

if it will not move forward in and forward gear and no codes something failed inside the transmission i am sorry to say it should always have a forward gear and reverse no matter what if the fluid is full

Also I was driving it after I put new filter and fluid and it did fine then all of a sudden it felt like tires weren't turning it would just rev up then it wouldn't go at all except in reverse
Pontiac Mechanic: Gary, Pontiac Technician replied 7 months ago

something has failed inside causing this issue more than likely a forward clutch failure as it should move forward no matter what happens electronically

it will need a rebuild or a used or new transmission installed
